Elite long range rifle maker Gunwerks and the California Wild Sheep Foundation are proud to partner to make one lucky person a big winner in 2018, while fundraising to benefit California’s wild sheep.

Gunwerks and CA Wild Sheep have partnered to donate a custom Gunwerks rifle, designed for hunting and target shooting, that rightly boasts 1,000 yard “out of the box” accuracy. The rifle will be up for raffle, giving ticket holders a better chance of winning the $9,000 rifle and scope combination than they have of drawing a California desert bighorn tag. Only 400 tickets will be sold at $50 per ticket donation.

Includes: LR1000 chambered in 28 Nosler with uted barrel; stainless steel action; Cerakote metal nish; Nightforce NXS 5.5-22X 50 MOAR scope with Zstop capped windage; a custom Gunwerks long range turret and custom hard case.

“As with any of our rifles, it will be ready to hunt right out of the box,” said Aaron Davidson, Gunwerks founder and president. “While our rifles are easily capable of shooting accurately well over 1,000 yards, our focus in on one shot, ethical kills whether from 10 or 1,000 yards, or in any conditions. Our customers can rely on the LR 1000 to do its job perfectly.”

CA Wild Sheep is offering raffle tickets for the rifle for a donation of $50 each with a limit of 400 tickets sold. That's great odds for winning a $9,000+ rifle/scope and custom case!

The lucky winner of this magnificent rifle will be drawn at CA Wild Sheep’s annual gala and fundraiser at the Double Tree Hotel in Sacramento on May 5, 2018. The winner need not be present to win. If the winner cannot personally pick up the rifle in Sacramento following the FFL waiting period, he or she will be responsible for shipping from Sacramento to the winner and any additional license or transfer charges.

Gunwerks has built a reputation as a leader in long range shooting and hunting since its beginning over 10 years ago. With an obsessive commitment to the science behind engineering and building the world’s most accurate and consistent rifles, Gunwerks has cracked the code in creating a true out-of-the-box long range shooting system. Yet Gunwerks has remained true to its hunting roots. A walk through its facility in Cody, Wyoming reveals a true passion for the hunting and shooting sports and the intricacies of fine gunsmithing. The Gunwerks business model is simple. They hunt hard. They shoot and train all year. The spend months, not days, with one short between success and failure. And they build some of the finest rifles on the planet.

In addition to custom long range rifles, Gunwerks also offers custom ammunition to complement their firearms, ballistic ranging equipment, and a number of courses on all aspects of long distance shooting. More information on Gunwerks and their LR 1000 can be found at www.gunwerks.com.
Tickets can be purchased through the CA Wild Sheep website at cawsf.org, where additional information about CA Wild Sheep’s mission, the 2018 gala and fundraiser, the 2018 version of the always-popular Dall sheep hunt drawing, and other information can be found.

Tickets for the Gunwerks rifle will be available at the fundraiser only if they have not been previously sold out. Due the anticipated popularity of the drawing, it is anticipated that few, if any, tickets may be available on the night of the fundraiser, so early ticket purchases are strong recommended.
